Wave of Prayer


Our “Wave of Prayer” is a continuous expression of our commitment in prayer to each other. It runs throughout the year so that the work and members of each and every area in which Mothers’ Union is active is prayed for at some point. We include this in our Midday Prayers.  You can see which areas we are praying for this month below.
